Enough Is Enough: Witches & Wizards Declare War On Boko Haram (A Must Read)

Making this revelation in an exclusive interview with Saturday Sun in Lagos on Wednesday, leader and spokesman, Witches and Wizards Association of Nigeria, (WITZAN), Dr. Okhue Iboi said the emergency meeting held by his members was not only aimed at discussing the various challenges confronting the nation but also to chart a way forward.

“Witches and Wizards in Nigeria are deeply worried by what is going on in the country especially Boko Haram insurgency. As stakeholders in the Nigerian project, we can no longer afford to fold our hands while the nation burns. Enough is enough”, he declared.

According to him, Shekau will be captured before the end of December, and paraded on the streets of Abuja and Maiduguri for the whole world to see.

“We witches and wizards in Nigeria have sealed the fate of Shekau. His days are numbered. He will be captured before the end of December, and contrary to the image and impression he has been creating that he is a warrior, after his capture, he will start singing like a canary bird.”

Not done yet, Iboi, further said that Shekau, upon his arrest, will mention some powerful people who are his sponsors.

“An ordinary eye can’t see what we are seeing in the coven world. Witches and wizards have put Shekau on our radar. There is no peace for him again until the day of his arrest,” he said.

Ohaozara kicks against Ohaozara’s inclusion in proposed Etiti State

Abuja – The Ohaozara General Assembly has kicked against the inclusion of Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi in the proposed Etiti State as recommended by the National Conference.

This is contained in a communiqué signed by Chief Dave Umahi, the  Ebonyi Deputy Governor and 28 others and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday.

The communiqué said Ohaozara people were at home in Ebonyi.

The  conference had recommended the creation of 18 states, including Etiti State from the South-East.

The local government areas that will be included in the new state are to be drawn from Ebonyi, Abia, Enugu, Anambra and Imo states.

However, the Ohaozara General Assembly, after their meeting at Obiozara, said that Ohaozara Local Government Area did not take a decision to be part of the proposed state.

Chief Enekwachi Akpa,  Chairman, Ohaozara Local Government Council of Ebonyi, who read the communiqué to journalists on Thursday in Abuja, said Ohaozara people were comfortable in Ebonyi.

“We are at home in Ebonyi because culturally, politically and economically, Ohaozara people are in affinity with their kith and kin of Abakaliki and Afikpo extractions.

“We have nothing in common with the bulk of people in the said proposed Etiti State,’’ the communiqué stated.

It stated that the people were not opposed to creation of additional states in the South-East, adding that Ohaozara people had moved from Imo to Abia and finally to Ebonyi.

“The Ohaozara people are at home in Ebonyi, we do not wish to be dragged into any other entity where we may become strangers,’’ it said.

Other prominent indigenes of the area that signed the communiqué, include Dr Igwe Aja-Nwachukwu, a former Minister of Education and Dr Ben Igwenyi, incumbent Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in Ebonyi.

The lawmakers representing the area in Ebonyi House of Assembly also signed the communiqué. (NAN)

100 AIDS researchers may have been killed in crash

As many as 100 AIDS researchers, activists and health workers who were traveling to a conference in Australia may have been on board the Malaysian jetliner shot down over Ukraine, according to unconfirmed reports.

“There’s been confirmed a number of senior people who were coming out here who were researchers, who were medical scientists, doctors, people who’ve been to the forefront of dealing with AIDS across the world,” Victoria Premier Denis Napthine told reporters in Melbourne on Friday. “The exact number is not yet known, but there is no doubt it’s a substantial number.”

The Australian newspaper reported that up to 108 delegates to the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, which starts Sunday, are believed to have died on flight MH17.

“At this incredibly sad and sensitive time the IAS stands with our international family and sends condolences to the loved ones of those who have been lost to this tragedy,” the statement said.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that among the dead are researcher Joep Lange, of the University of Amsterdam, and World Health Organization spokesman Glenn Thomas.

Lange is well known in the field, with dozens of publications. He led clinical trials involving antiretroviral therapies, and the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. He was president of the International AIDS society from 2002-2004, and is a founder and co-editor-in-chief of the journal Antiviral Therapy.

298 killed after Malaysian airliner shot down in Ukraine

26367 3538 95 LINKEDIN 357 COMMENTMORE

Officials from several countries vow to quickly determine who’s behind Thursday’s downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 and the deaths of all 298 aboard.

U.S. intelligence officials confirmed that the crash was caused by a surface-to-air missile near Ukraine’s border with Russia, but have yet to determine where it originated. The incident already is inflaming tensions between the two countries and escalating political rhetoric elsewhere.

It was “not an accident, it was blown out of the sky,” said Vice President Joe Biden.

Malaysia Airlines said Ukrainian air traffic control lost contact with Flight MH17 about 30 miles from Russia. There were no distress calls as the Boeing 777, carrying 283 passengers and 15 crew, began to break apart as it fell from the sky in the world’s deadliest aviation incident since 9/11.

Crash victims and body parts were strewn among burning debris up to 10 miles away. Among the dead: 154 Dutch nationals, 27 Australians, 11 Indonesians, six Brits, four Germans, four Belgians, four French, three Filipinos and a Canadian. Malaysian Air officials have so far not identified any Americans among the passengers, although they cautioned that some nationalities have still not been verified.

The White House said late Thursday night that “We continue to seek information to determine whether there were any American citizens on board.”

The crash site is in Ukraine’s war-torn Donetsk region, where political unrest and scattered fighting between Ukraine and pro-Russian militants has festered for months. After the downing of several Ukraine aircraft in recent days, accusations, blame and finger-pointing over Thursday’s crash was fevered.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called the crash “an act of terrorism’ and demanded an international investigation. Ukrainian officials said they had intercepted telephone calls of a separatist leader discussing the crash with Russian military intelligence officers. Separatists initially believed they had downed a military cargo plane, according to the SBU, Ukraine’s main security agency.

 

But Russian President Putin blamed the incident on Ukraine’s government, which “carries responsibility for this horrible tragedy.”

“We will do everything – everything that depends on us, in any case – to ensure that an objective picture of the events becomes accessible for our public and for the Ukrainian public and the entire world,” Putin said.

In brief remarks at an appearance in Wilmington, Del., President Obama called the incident a “terrible tragedy” and said the U.S. will offer “any services it can” to determine what happened.

Malaysia Airlines Plane Crash: Flight Shot Down Over Ukraine (LATEST UPDATES)

A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday, killing all 295 people aboard. The plane was on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, wrote on Facebook that the plane was hit by a missile fired from a Buk launcher over the country’s east. U.S. officials told NBC News that the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile, and that intelligence analysts “were trying to determine who launched the missile.”

Although Ukraine blamed pro-Russian militants for shooting down the plane, separatist leader Oleg Tsarev denied the accusations. “We don’t have weapons that can take down a plane from that altitude,” Tsarev told TIME. Business Insider explains that despite Tsarev’s denials, the rebels reportedly had such weapons and have recently taken down multiple Ukrainian military aircraft. The New Republic’s Julia Ioffe notes, “An hour before #MH17 went down, separatists were bragging about downing a Ukrainian military plane.”

Malaysia Airlines confirmed it had lost contact with flight MH17 and that its last position was over Ukrainian airspace.

A Russian aviation industry source told Reuters that the plane did not enter Russian airspace when expected. Russian radio reports that the plane’s black box has been sent to Moscow “for investigation,” according to The Daily Beast.

Ukraine’s east has seen heavy fighting between the country’s military and separatists in recent days. Earlier on Thursday, the Ukrainian military claimed Russian jets had shot down a Ukrainian warplane late Wednesday night.
